Re: 2014 diesel production

Now I'm really an idiot for selling my 07 CRD back in January with the hopes and dreams of ordering a 14 diesel. I bought a used Audi TT quatro for the summer . Now maybe the winter. Will have to check the Q5 pricing. Really like the quality on the Audi.

my buddy put blizzaks on his TT for the winter and he NEVER had an issue. We live in Minnesota. Just keep driving it forever.

Re: 2014 diesel production

^ I hear putting four donuts on does even better. Just cuts right through the snow.

Just air em up to the max, and you'll ease thru snow like you're riding on four pizza cutters!

Car won't handle for nothin, but who cares, big deal..

You can put wishes in one bag & crap in another, see what bag fills up first.

It has Michelin Sport pilot A/S. Good for light snow. That won't cut in in Michigan. If the unicorns aren't out by the time the snow flies I'll look into the Blizzaks.

I know complaining on a forum won't do much good but I keep hoping someone up the food chain gets wind and hears our woes.

Nice! I have a Super Ten'r for summer commuting duties. Driving a car gets you from point a to point b, riding a motorcycle cleanses the soul (and wakes you up on the way to work...)

Sorry for the off topic.

In honor of this thread, I picked a new riding jacket out for you...

LOL, I think I'll stick with my new high viz jacket as the one you recommended might make countersteering a little difficult.

Love the S10 bikes... nice.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Well another one bites the dust here. I think I'm gonna bail on the CRD and just grab the V6. Not sure yet if I'll order one or just check dealer lots in a couple of weeks.

Maybe all these delays are the universe's way of telling my not to get the diesel right now. I've been getting cold feet lately thinking about Jeep not being ready for "prime time" servicing diesels on a big scale - heck they can't even launch the thing without falling all over themselves

Most people with the V6 are happy with power plus it will cost me a lot less upfront. Long term maintenance may be less on the gasser too. I drive close to 25k miles a year so long-term maintenance has to be a big factor for me as well as fuel economy. A couple of red flags on diesel maintenance for me were exclusion from max care extended warranty and someone posted possible about exclusions of all the diesel emissions stuff on extended warranty. Add in the relative newness of the engine and Jeep being unfamiliar with servicing diesels and it had me worried.

All of this stuff will eventually get worked out and Jeep will do fine with diesels but it might take a few years of growing pains. Maybe I'll be good for diesel version 2.0 someday

I thought about other manufacturers diesels but the price goes up quickly and maintenance on German cars is costly in the long term. I really just like the Jeep

Good luck to those still waiting, I'll be rooting for you!
